Are you Canadian? Do you watch the news? If you answered yes to both of those questions then there’s a good chance you’re eligible to win a fabulous trip for two to Bermuda courtesy of WestJet, Bermuda Department of Tourism, Fairmont Hamilton and Fairmont Southampton. But don’t get your hopes up west coasters—in addition to being eighteen years of age at the time of entry you must be a legal resident of the Province of Ontario. Here’s the deal: All you have to do is watch the Global News Hour at 6pm EDT for the “Experience Bermuda” daily clue. Watch for the clue, submit it online and you’ll be entered into the contest for a chance to win one of 15 trips for two to Bermuda, including roundtrip airfare from Toronto, three nights at the Fairmont Southampton or Fairmont Hamilton Princess, breakfast daily and a round of golf. So what are you looking for exactly? Basically key words that have something to do with the island: According to this SmartCanucks message board, Monday’s clue was “pink sand beaches,” Tuesday’s clue was “Gulf Stream,” and Wednesday’s clue was “snorkeling at Church Bay.” Of course you could always just watch the news to find out but I somewhat like the spirit of whoever’s behind SmartCanucks. I say clues for everyone! A new clue will be given every day on the Global News Hour until April 9th so get watching. And hey, if you lose, you can always book one of those super-cheap non-stop flights on WestJet from Toronto. Just $99 each way, eh?
